EHFCN Mission

Mission: EHFCN is the only organisation dedicated to combating fraud, corruption and waste in the healthcare sector across Europe in order to improve healthcare systems for the benefit of every patient.


The main aim of EHFCN is to work with its member organisations to counter fraud, corruption and waste. It supports its members and associates entities in their work of prevention, detection, investigation, prosecution and redress of healthcare fraud, corruption, and waste.

In order to reach this, EHFCN:

  • provides its members with a platform to exchange information and tools, best practices and ideas;
  • promotes the development of common working standards through education and events (workshops, ‘Open houses’)
  • represents its member organisations towards national, European and international organisations involved in healthcare and/or in countering fraud and corruption.

EHFCN was founded in 2005 as a result of the first pan-European conference held in London in October 2004. Its foundations lie in the European Healthcare Fraud and Corruption Declaration agreed upon by its delegates.

EHFCN is a not-for-profit organisation financed through subscription fees. Its members are healthcare and counter fraud organisations in Europe.
